Crazy Car Rally (adverb activity)

Carl the Car Racing Driver was crazy about his customised racing car and wacky about wacky races. He polished and waxed it every weekend and kept it in tip top condition. Until a tyre burst, when he soon became barking mad and bananas if the brakes failed. Dirty exhaust fumes drove him barmy and he went crackers when the paintwork cracked. Small chips in the windscreen left him loony and loopy, not to mention the other idiots on the roads. But what made Carl the Car Racing Driver really go round the bend were crazy car rallies. He simply went cuckoo about them. He loved the excitement of watching the flag wave and spinning around the track. He was wild about winning and raving mad if he came runner up. The audience cheered insanely when they saw Carl the Car Racing Driver was in the race – his fans were doolally about him. In fact, Carl the Car Racing Driver had come first in so many championships that he kept a whole stock of medals stored in his cupboard at home. Nothing made Carl the Racing Car Driver as nutty as a fruit cake as the dust on his winners’ cups. Carl the Car Racing Driver was crazy about his customised racing car and wacky about wacky races.
